    NCAA bias disappearing from NHL. Staying 3+ years in college gives kids educational basis for their post playing careers with a degree (or close to it).

    School Bias

    School bias would reflect the situation better. School hockey especially in Canada has made great progress the last ten seasons at the private and public levels. NHL has recognized this, now actively scouting school programs in Canada like they do in the USA.

    Mark Jankowski, 2012 Flames #1 pick out of Stanstead College being an example. Midget AAA in Quebec is increasingly school affiliated and the Sport Etudes program is growing not only for hockey.

    These factors provide the base and inclination for the NCAA or university option.

    Lacking is a similar improvement in CIS hockey which is still too dependent on post CHL players.
